Who is Ranvir Singh?

Ranvir Singh was born August 11, 1977, and is an English television presenter and journalist.

She was raised in Preston, Lancashire into a Sikh family.

The 44-year-old was educated at Kirkham Grammar School and went on to graduate from the University of Lancaster with a degree in English and Philosophy.

She then underwent a postgraduate qualification in journalism at the School of Journalism in Preston.

After joining Strictly, Ranvir said: “The initial feeling of being confirmed for Strictly is one of complete terror – feels like embarking on a rollercoaster, where you really want to do it but you are equally scared.

“Hopefully after the first dance I will feel exhilarated rather than sick!”

Ranvir ultimately proved to be a hit on the show and made it to the Grand Final before finishing in fifth place.
